 Keurig Lovers...

Which do you prefer, the Platinum Single Serve Brewer or the Special Edition Single Serve Brewer? I can't fully understand the difference/value of one over the other. We're also looking at the Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, but I'm beginning to think we just have too many options...

Advice is appreciated!

Perhaps a link with the diffrent models?

Personally, I don't think you can go wrong, as long as you can also use the "My K Cup" for when you want a cup of ground coffee or when you run out of/don't feel like buying K Cups then it's all the same.

What ever model it is that I have, it has a 40 (?) oz water resevoir that we fill pretty much every day. I love it. LOVE IT.

I think the difference between the two is the water resivour(sp?). Mine is the Special Edition and it hold 72 oz of water. I can't remember the Platinum. DH told me as he looked at both when he was buying mine.

Special Edition: http://www.keurig.com/brewers/special-edition-brewing-system

Breville: http://www.breville.ca/gourmet-single-cup-brewer.html

You're right about the reservoir; I think the Breville and Platinum both have the 60oz reservoir. I also think the Breville is the only one with the "my K cup" option!

Im not sure which one we have, but it has the XL option -5 cup sizes in all. We love it as well. I find though that one pod is not enough for an XL coffee - so I set it to med and use two pods. I like having the option of the different sizes.

I bought the KCup and have no idea of how much coffee to put in - should be a no brainer, Im guessing.

You can use the My K Cup in all of the models that you mentioned, but it comes included with the Breville one. You'd have to buy it separately for the others. Differences are reservoir size and choices of cup sizes. I think one of them makes cold beverages and the other doesn't but I can't remember which, I've been off work too long.

If I were to do it all over again, I'd get the Breville, but it is a fair bit more expensive. We have the Special Edition now though and we love it, no problems with ours.

I have a Platinum and a Breville. I bought the Breville on a boxing day sale and brought my Platinum into the office. The Breville has a bigger tank size, which I like. Otherwise, not much difference. The iced setting is just a 4oz cup size that you brew over ice. You can do it with any machine, really.

Anyone have the elite? It just does 2 cup sizes. It's on sale for $88 at Walmart, so was thinking of picking one up.

I have an elite and I like it. To fill a travel cup I do two small cups with the same k-cup. I just do a quarter turn so that it makes new holes in the cup.
